Sorry for the double post. This is what Deadlists has for that show:

Band Grateful Dead
Venue Atlanta Sports Arena
Location Atlanta, GA
Date 5/10/70 - Sunday
One Hard To Handle % The Other One
Comments According to Barry Welch, who attended the concert, it was announced before the show that TWA had failed to deliver the band's equipment and they were going to borrow the Allman Bros' gear, and first the Allmans would play a set, and then the Dead would play a set, and then they'd Jam together. According to Chris Cole who attended this show it was an afternoon show and among the tunes played were Hard To Handle and The Other One. The Dead Jammed with the Allmans during the Allmans' set as well. DeadBase IX lists a Mama Tried and a Will The Circle Be Unbroken, the latter with the Allman Bros.
Recordings none in circulation 10/00

I have heard from other people that this show was actually held in Piedmont Park (or a free park show was added later)
A common memory seems to be a "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" played jointly by the Dead & the ABB. Sure would have loved to have heard that one! Maybe the recorder was with the other equipment delayed by TWA.

Thanks for posting a tribute to 1970, my favorite year. I saw both them & the ABB for the first time that year. I will humbly submit this show, my first show, to this list of great '70 shows. It is an overlooked gem that sounds really nice and contains the first "Friend of the Devil", "Candyman" and the last "Katie Mae". Great acoustic & electric sets and a credit to the year.
